Applying for Indexed Tuition

Families who wish to apply for indexed tuition may do so online at this link using School ID 13598. Smart Aid requests a number of supporting documents that may include most recent paystubs, 2017 W-2 forms, and 2016 filed tax returns. Applications and supporting materials should be submitted as soon as possible. Phone support is available at (800) 360-8027; email support is available at

All information submitted in an application for indexed tuition will be held in strictest confidence and reviewed separately from the family’s application for admission.

After processing an application for indexed tuition, Smart Aid will provide the school with a tuition recommendation that is subject to further review. Applications received after our January 5 deadline will be considered on a rolling basis. Offers of admission to Thaden, which will be mailed by February 15 to families who meet the January 5 application deadline, will also include a decision regarding indexed tuition.

Families may also choose not to apply for indexed tuition, in which case they will pay the maximum tuition ($23,700 for Middle School; $24,800 for Upper School).
